Attempting to remedy my yarn hoarding

Some time last year, I tried to purge the part of my yarn stash that was made up of the stuff that I knew WOULD NEVER EVER get used.  Ever.  Out went all the tiny balls of cotton dishcloth yarn that I used for one weekend (the weekend where I thought, I'll never need to buy paper towels ever again! Yeah, no.).  Out went the scraps of skeins I had used for other projects but decided to keep in case I could use them for tiny projects, or combined for stripes.  Out went a bunch of half finished projects that were just kind of meh, that would never end up being finished.

This left me with my current situation.  There are still bins of yarn sitting in my craft room that I still consider nice looking and have enough yardage to make a decent size project.  Why is it so hard to just shop my stash for my next knit, instead of looking longingly at other yarns at the LYS?  I mean, I must've looked at my existing stuff this way once, right?  

So in the interest of acting rationally/ sanely when it comes to my yarn, I'm going to attempt to use up everything I have left before I buy anything new.  I have no gift knitting to do where I have to take someone else's preferences into account, so everything is totally up to me.  This is going to be rough.
